We have a division of powers, if you take care of it, it’s very simple.

Ddeek and his grandmother also lived in the hotel, which is great, that they are under town when something happens.

How do you see a hotel in twenty years?I understand the personal relationship between the owner and the guest and I am convinced that there is an individual approach to each guest. At that time, cycling will still be a big deal and we will have to offer services for different types of bikes: e-bikes, enduro, cross country. In 2038, Traminer will be a cycling and lifestyle town in Tramno, where guests and towns will meet and exchange experiences, honor and honor.
